Most of the time, potholes are nothing more than a nuisance for drivers because they require motorists to slow down and drive around them. However, potholes can pose a threat to many drivers and are actually one of the leading causes of auto accidents. In certain situations, accidents caused by potholes can even result in serious injury or even death.
In general, roads are public property and thus are the responsibility of various governmental groups. These municipalities are required to keep roads updated and safe from defects such as potholes.
